Which I was glad to see because in the Fast and Furious films she was just a tall drink of water.
And this is why I am seeing it in Dolby Cinema instead! Dolby Atmos and HDR for the Win!!!!

I guess Warner and DC are finally relieved to have the critics "on their side". I can't wait to see the movie!!

The gal from M:I Rogue Nation, Rebecca Ferguson, was my first pick for Wonder Woman. Have no qualms though with Gal Gadot playing the role after she saved BvS from boredom.

Agreed re: Gal Gadot- never heard of her prior to BvS, don't know if there is something from her past that turns some fans off, but I have no issue.

Just need an able bodied, athletic brunette that can peform credible lines once in a while. Funky accent helps with the "exotic" angle.

Be nice to have had Lynda Carter as her mother...

Other than Bain's dialog (un)intelligibility and the excessive length of the 3rd DK, I had no issue with it. The plane hijack scene is one of the greatest and most original action/stunt scenes to date, a staple HT demo. Pacing could have been more up tempo.

She was in the Fast and Furious franchise for awhile, I think that's what put her on the "map" for NA audiences.

Just got home from watching the movie.

Pretty good but I don't get why they killed her off at the end. Don't they need her for the sequels?

Thought it was a very good movie, though the dialog between Pine and Gadot in the last act could've been better, with less spluttering by Pine. Still, everyone was clapping after the end.

The Justice League teaser or trailer or whatever the heck it was, shown before WW began, left me cold.

...Just got back from watching it - fantastic! ...at times the CGI felt a bit off (it's actually always the case in every superhero films), but it's really a minor gripe. I like her innocence and sadness, makes for a more complex character, or at least quite different than our usual superheroes. 3D was unnecessary, as always... I loved how they incorporated her theme with the new music, which was also very good. It's amazing how DC/Warner always manage to give their films the epic themes they deserve, while Marvel/Disney never seem to go above the "good enough" category most of the time. I may have more to say later, but for now that's it, I loved it!

Did anybody watch it in a Dolby theater? Watched it one last night, which was only my 2nd Dolby cinema visit, and if THAT was HDR and/or 4K, I'm never wasting money on a Dolby theater again. Picture was rubbish. Jagged lines aplenty and blacks were a murky grey. However, there are clearly issues with the management at that theater (that's a whole other story but it stemmed from the cleaning lights being on in the auditorium for the entirety of the trailers despite multiple complaints) so maybe there was an issue on their end. And, I always wanted to make fun of Scott for saying that the volume was too loud in his reviews of Dolby cinema movies, but good lord--that felt dangerously loud. And not in a good way. The action scenes were pain-inducing.

Oh the other movie I watched in a Dolby cinema (a different one BTW--Colorado now has at least two) was Lego Batman. Picture was drop-dead gorgeous and sound was also good but volume was rather low. Might be hard to compare to an animated film but, the half of one trailer I saw was the Blade Runner and that also looked gorgeous with inky blacks. Nothing like what I saw with Wonder Woman.

I liked the audio with butt kickers (or whatever they use) but if every Dolby Cinema movie had blacks like Alien: Covenant or Wonder Woman then the Dolby engineers could have done something more useful than making these awesome projectors that are capable of huge contrast ratio. Such a waste IMO.

i understand the filmmakers that made Arrival wanting a certain washed out look and maybe the people who made Wonder Woman wanted it to look washed out and flat to fit the old war theme, but the gray blacks for the whole movie didn't seem necessary to me, like when there was a scene around and outdoor fire.

I hoe The Mummy doesn't end up looking like that.

I did. Last night at Tysons Corner in Northern VA. I agree with everything that you're saying outside of the sound which I thought was one of the best parts of the movie. Amazing.

The film looked too dark at times. I kept thinking to myself I wonder when the last time was that they cleaned the lens or tweaked the sharpness setting on the projector? It for sure cld have been brighter. I wasn't that impressed with the presentation but LOVED the movie.

It was really well done. Def buy for me and I may see it again this wknd.

Hmm...I find it particularly interesting that Alien Covenant had similarly murky black levels. I can't imagine for a second that that was intended on behalf of the film-makers, considering that Prometheus is reference-grade on blu-ray with fantastic contrast and black levels. Interesting...

Wonder Woman Storms To The Top Of The Box Office This Weekend

Though many would argue that Wonder Woman was a bonafide win for the DC Extended Universe even before it hit theatres, given its fantastic reviews and positive buzz, we really needed to wait for those all important box office numbers to roll in before the celebrations could commence. Now that they have, however, DC fans can feel free to breathe a sigh of relief, as Patty Jenkins’ blockbuster has scored a mighty impressive $100.5 million opening on home turf – which should have WB execs smiling from ear to ear.

Initial estimates put the Gal Gadot-led flick at around $75 million, so this is definitely a welcome surprise. It’s also a new record for the biggest opening by a female director, knocking Fifty Shades of Grey‘s $85.1 million off the top spot. Not only that, but Wonder Woman is also now the 16th superhero movie ever to cross $100 million on its opening weekend. And, that’s only domestically. Once you factor in the international numbers, which come to $122.5 million, the Amazonian princess’ solo outing now has a total of $223 million under its belt.

Elsewhere at the box office this weekend, there wasn’t a whole lot going on. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie brought in $23.5 million, while Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales took the third spot with $22 million. Rounding out the top 5 were Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with $10 million and Baywatch with $8.5 million.

Looking ahead, Wonder Woman won’t be facing too much competition in the weeks to come, though The Mummy could definitely steal some audience members away. Aside from that though, we expect the film to continue to dominate until Transformers: The Last Knight barrels into theatres on the 21st.

That's amazing! As a fan of the previous films, I'm glad this one is a resounding success both with audiences and critics!

Picture was rubbish. Jagged lines aplenty and blacks were a murky grey.
That wasn't my experience at all. No lack of resolution, fine film grain evident, deep blacks. I mentioning in another thread that the theater I went to did a great job with the black level. Almost no lights at all to wash out the screen, not even floor lights, and dim exit signs. I was pleased.

As one may have suspected in watching the alley scene in WW the director acknowledges it was a homage to Superman - The Movie.

Also, the ice cream scene originated in one of the comic series and has seen a couple incarnations in versions of the WW franchise.
